The Center for the Arts’ Rooftop Productions presents the Christmas musical Nuncrackers, which will open Thanksgiving weekend and run through Dec. 10.  The fourth in the Nunsense series of musicals with book, music and lyrics written by Dan Goggin, Nuncrackers takes place in the Mount Saint Helen’s Convent where they are producing their first TV special for cable TV.  The sisters are presenting their annual Christmas program which includes Sister Mary Leo’s The Christmas Box and Sister Amnesia’s country hit, Santa Ain’t Comin’ to Our House.  Not to be outdone, Father Virgil and Reverend Mother provide a comedy ballet as the dueling Sugar Plum Fairies.
